My Family :)

Love these guys to pieces!  I took some photos of my brother’s family last week while I was visiting New York.  Nora’s getting more mobile = more challenging to shoot!  But darn it is she cute!

Daniel Family

Enjoyed meeting the Daniel family at Riverfront Park on an overcast day a couple of weeks ago.  Clara and Emma are just the cutest!  The trick that worked like a charm for this session?  Telling Clara, “Don’t smile!  Don’t you do it!”  Got the BEST natural smiles from her that way!  For some kiddos that doesn’t work and they just stare me down and give me the stink eye, ha!  But it’s always worth a shot.

Brent & Courtney

I’ve known Courtney for a few years now and was excited when she asked me to take engagement photos for her and her fiance, Brent!  We wandered around an area of town where Brent used to live.  One of the photos includes a balcony where they had their first date 🙂  Congratulations, you two!

Buchen Family

I’ve known Jim, Angie and their family for about 8 years now.  The first time I babysat for them, Luke was only 1!  That makes me feel so old :/  I’ve done a shoot with them at the beach and this time we opted for their own property which I thought was a good choice.  (Don’t mind the chickens running around 😉

Mitchell Family

I’ve enjoyed meeting families from out of town who find me online.  The Mitchell family came to Charleston from Raleigh and wanted some photos to remember their visit. They’re a good lookin’ bunch, aren’t they?
